Henry Brant at KPFA Berkeley, 1971


Published August 16, 1971


Henry Brant, born in 1913 in Montreal, surveys his music with Charles Amirkhanian. Brant has enlarged upon musical practices of Gabrielli and Ives to create spatial music. This music calls for the physical separation of different groups of musicians within the performance space who simultaneously perform wildly diverse music in and around the audience. Brant has experimented with unusual instruments some of which have been built specifically for his compositions.
During this program you will hear: Hieroglyphics II (1960); Odyssey Why Not? (1966); Origins (1951); the first two movements of Brants transcription of Beethovens String Quartet, Opus 131, for Woodwind Quintet; and Hidden Roads, one section from the composition Crossroads.
